Obama's real legacy makes him one of the worst US presidents of all time.
You have to give credit to Obama, he comes across as a genuinely honest guy who's a great speaker and who has tonnes of charisma, almost enough to convince you that his 8 years in office were a success and not huge failure. Mainstream media is doing all it can to hype and brainwash people about Obama's legacy, even years after he left office, while completely whitewashing all of his massive failures both domestic and abroad. The biggest foreign international crime Barack Obama, nobel peace prize laureate, was responsible for was of course Libya. The US administration headed by Clinton and Obama, backed by NATO , the UK, France and the Gulf states, destroyed Libya and toppled its regime. This resulted in Libya becoming a failed state, and an ongoing civil war that claimed the lives of tens of thousnads of Libyans. This was mainly because Obama had no plans as to what to do after Gaddafi was removed from office. He and his then secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, thought that just by bombing Libya and destroying the Gaddafi regime, they will make the world a better place. They were wrong, and now Libyans the middle east and countries in south of Europe are having to deal with the consequences.
How Libya's capital, Tripoli, looks like these days. Most people don't realize that Obama actually bombed more countries than Bush, who is perceived to be the most hawkish and gung ho US president ever. Obama has approved military operations and bombings in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, Libya and Syria. The Bureau of Investigative Journalism (BIJ) estimates the Obama administration has launched more than 390 drone strikes in five years across Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia – eight times as many approved during the entire Bush Presidency. Obama even had the "distinguished" honor of being the first nobel peace prize winner to bomb another nobel peace prize winner, "Doctors Without Borders", when US/NATO war planes bombed their hospital in Afghanistan in 2015, killing 22 people. Under Obama US spying and bulk data collection on its own citizens, as well on its friends and allies abroad, has not decreased, but grew exponentially. Obama has literally turned the US into a full blown surveillance state where almost every citizen might be monitored by the government. During the Obama years the gap between the rich Americans and the poor Americans has grown to an all time high. Even his signature policy “Obamacare” has turned out to be a colossal failure, seeing how its rising premiums are making it unaffordable to people who have signed up to it. Even Bill Clinton called “Obamacare” the “craziest thing in the world” because of how badly it was structured and executed.
Bill Clinton explains why Obamacare is the "craziest thing in the world."
President Barack Obama has often been referred to by immigration groups as the "Deporter in Chief." Between 2009 and 2015 Obama's administration has removed more than 2.5 million people through immigration orders, which doesn’t include the number of people who "self-deported" or were turned away and/or returned to their home country at the border by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. According to governmental data, the Obama administration has deported more people than any other president's administration in history. In fact, they have deported more than the sum of all the presidents of the 20th century.

Local law enforcement uncovered the operation last year, prompting the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations to open an inquiry into the federal government’s handling of migrants. “It is intolerable that human trafficking — modern-day slavery — could occur in our own backyard,” Senator Rob Portman, Republican of Ohio and the chairman of the subcommittee, told the New York Times. “But what makes the Marion cases even more alarming is that a U.S. government agency was responsible for delivering some of the victims into the hands of their abusers.” The Senate’s investigation found that during the Obama years migrant children were placed in homes where they were sexually abused, starved, or forced into slave labor. The agency placed 90,000 migrant children into sponsor care between 2013 and 2015. Exactly how many of those fell prey to traffickers is unknown, because the agency does not keep track.
Even Obama's foreign policy “successes” with Iran and Cuba are really insignificant, seeing how Cuba was ripe for any US rapprochement for many years now, and the Iran deal was cancelled by Trump. Most of Obama's policies were enacted not through congress or through the legislative branch, but through executives orders, which are now being overturned by the current president, Donald Trump, reducing Obama's "legacy" and "achievements" to absolutly nothing. Even Obama's signature trade deals, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal, the one he was working on for 8 years, which involved the US and 11 countries in Asia, South America and the south Pacific, and TTIP, the proposed US - EU trade deal were snuffed out the moment Trump took office. Obama was one of the worst US presidents of all time, both domestically and abroad, he accomplished almost literally nothing in his 8 years in office, but the only thing that people will remember about him was that he was the first African American president of the US, and that he was "cool".
